Welcome back to Chat Sh*t Get Fit - Chatting Supplements. This week we explore omega 3 & 6 supplementation. Both come with a wide range of benefits that we explore fully giving our thoughts and summarising the latest evidence as well. Do they help with cardiovascular health, brain health, exercise recovery? These are some of the things we dive into. The big question is though...Do you need to supplement extra into your diet?


We also look at the different types of omega 3 - ALA, EPA, DHA and go into why these types make all the difference when it comes to food containing "omega 3". Honestly it's all a bit crazy this week and this episode was certainly a headache to research so we hope you find some value in what we say.


Before taking a health supplement it's important you consult your doctor first in case of any underlying health issues.
